I studied at Edge Hill University in Ormskirk, near Liverpool. Going to university was something I dreamed of since I was about 15 and I was so excited at the prospect of actually going! Despite my university experience starting a big shaky, it quickly improved and I met some of the best people I’ve ever had the pleasure to know – all of which are now my best friends. (I’m also best friends with my identical twin sister Emily – we’re practically inseparable, even though we went to different universities for three years. We’re even planning on getting a flat together.)
The most important thing you need to know about me is that I love to read (it would be a bit rubbish if I hated reading and ran a book blog). I used to be very picky with what I chose to read but I’m learning to be more open-minded and give more books a chance! I’ve loved books since I was a kid and it feels great to share my passion for all things bookish on this blog. I’ve tried my hand at blogging so many times in the past, and it’s never worked for long – I always gave up after a few posts. However, something clicked with this one and now I spend the majority of my time writing, reading books to review or just thinking about the millions of post ideas swirling around in my brain. As hobbies go, I love it!
Besides blogging, I work as a virtual assistant at Taskerly. I work with some AMAZING bloggers and business owners to schedule their social media, help build their websites, check their inboxes, design graphics, and so much more. I love my job (fun fact – it was my dream job for ages, and I got it just because I talked about it on my blog. Thanks for finding me, Jo! <3)
In terms of the books I like to read and review, my preferences are really broadening. I like to read anything from dark mystery thrillers to chick-lit (within reason – romance isn’t my most favourite thing in the world). I don’t decide whether to like a book based on its genre; I wait until I read the blurb before I make a decision to read it or not. (I’m also guilty of judging a book by it’s cover. I’M SORRY.)
